We believe that art, in all its forms, leads the way to the stimulation of children’s creativity, curiosity, imagination and self-confidence.
We provide our children with the opportunity of experiencing as wide a variety of art forms as is possible and to encourage them to examine attitudes and meaning to them.
Children develop a visual awareness and vocabulary, and an understanding of the elements of colour, texture, line, pattern and shape whilst acquiring artistic skills and techniques.
We believe that the Arts should extend beyond the confines of the National Curriculum and the school places great importance and emphasis on extra-curricular activities and developing links with artists and art providers from the wider community. All children are given equal opportunity to participate in these activities, extending their learning opportunities to include arts from many different cultures.
